(1940) Pat O’Brien gives a sturdy, likable performance as Rockne (1888-1931), the dedicated football coach whose winning teams made the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame a national favorite after World War I. Director Lloyd Bacon pays equal attention to Rockne’s qualities on and off the field, both as devoted family man and charismatic molder of youths into men, the most memorable example of which has to do with halfback George Gipp (Ronald Reagan). Inspiring period portrait of a legendary coach who believed in the character-building values of collegiate competition.  (A-I -- general patronage) TCM (cable)
